Best Kids Lunch Ideas

Image placeholder title

Are you as bored with packing lunches as I am? This ennui seems to happen to all moms around this time of year. Instead of picking the dreaded lunchables, consider an organic treat that's just as easy to toss in a lunch pail. Vermont Village Applesauce ( ) will turn a boring meal into something noteworthy. They blend the applesauce from heirloom varieties and prepare the sauce in small batches--the result is delicious.

We did a little taste test here at Momtrends and the Vermont Village beat Santa Cruz by a yard. Could be the heritage. These apple trees were planted in Vermont in the 1800'??s by its earliest settlers. The delivery couldn't have come at a better time. We've been snacking on all the mixes: Cinnamon, Peach (a favorite), Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry, and more. Expect to pay $3.99 for 24 oz jars or $3.49 for a pack of 4 oz snack cups: $3.49. And instead of tossing a few cookies into your child's lunch, shave some calories and fat by picking the pre-packed applesauce cups (and don't forget to find a re-suable plastic spoon to send to school too).

We are also available online for purchase at:
